Driving in Strong Winds

Driving in winter can be a dangerous errand if you’re not careful enough – With the combination of cold and wet weather, the roads are becoming wetter and icier by the day, demanding full attention of all drivers behind a wheel in these conditions.

One other factor we see a lot of in winter is strong winds – When driving against strong winds, it is necessary to exercise more caution, as winds can cause rubbish and debris such as tree branches to fall into the path of your car, and also to keep an eye on other drivers who may find their driving affected by gales.

Also be aware of driving beside larger vehicles – These may shelter you from strong gusts for a time, so when you emerge into the open, you are likely to experience a strong side wind.

Safe driving from Britannia!
